Parent Involvement

photo2.jpgWe recognise the vital role which parents have to play in the educa​tion of their children and encourage their co-operation and involvement.

Parental support is ​strongly encouraged in all areas of the curriculum. Parents will be suitably prepared for their class environment. Such tasks would include helping children with:

  • reading
  • art
  • craft
  • sport
  • physical education
  • story writing
  • outings etc

Confidentiality regarding students and their needs is an important aspect of class involvement.

'... parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it'
[ Gravissimun Educationis ]

'... the renewal of the Catholic School must give special attention both to the parents of the pupils and to the formation of a perfect educating community'
